Okay Foresters and Wildlife Biologists, put the this date on your 2017 calendar and in your budget: March 28-31, 2017! These are the dates for the 2017 Joint Annual Meeting between Washington State SAF (WSSAF) and the Washington Chapter of The Wildlife Society (TWS). The Joint Annual Meeting will be held at the Yakima Convention Center and neighboring Red Lion Inn. Both facilities are top-notch and the lodging for members is at $89/night - single occupancy and $109/night – double occupancy, and there will be a student lodging rate of $99/night for up to 4 students/room. The details of the program and registration are still in early stages with the meeting theme: Forests/Wildlife: responding to change. Registration will be affordable and the opportunities for the program make it a meeting to plan early to attend. We still need volunteers to serve on the program, registration, auction, student and field trip committees to help make it a great event. Please contact with Wendy Sammarco, WSSAF Chair-Elect at email@example.com or John Walkowiak, WSSAF Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are available to help.
